Hi:

 

This is what the code means...

 

Category Major/minor code Description


BIOS                 2.2

The main area (DXE) of BIOS has become corrupted and there is no recovery binary image available.

 

The only suggestion I can offer would be to download the BIOS update from your PC's support page and see if you can make a bootable BIOS USB recovery drive.  Some files will allow for this.
